Since Shaun Hill will be 37 years old by the time the 2017 season rolls around, the main question going around about him is his longevity. Eventually, he will want to hang up his cleats and call it a career.
However, he did see action in 3 games this season, including one start in week 1 against the Titans. During that game, he completed only 54.5% of his passes, threw for under 250 yards, and failed to throw a touchdown. The statistics from the other two games don’t look great either, as he was just 1 for 2 in passing for a total of 6 yards.
Hill isn’t the kind of guy that the Minnesota Vikings want to rest their hopes on, but he can step in when needed to play a game or some snaps and not make a lot of costly mistakes to hurt the team.
The future Hill has with the team likely rests of the health of Teddy Bridgewater and the potential the Vikings see in Taylor Heinicke to serve as a backup or QB3. But based on last year’s performances, it might be best to explore their options going forward.
